Bob Dylan Back On The Road In April

Bob Dylan has loaded up his April calendar with more than a dozen U.S. gigs featuring support from Dawes. The tour is headed to New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan.

It sounds like Dawes couldn’t wait to spill the beans about the excursion. Earlier today Los Angeles-based rockers tweeted, “Alright … we can finally announce it. We’re opening for Bob Dylan for this next tour.”

But first Dawes has lined up several appearances at SXSW in March and a tour of independent record stores across the U.S. March 18 through April 2. The band will be playing tunes from its upcoming third full-length. Due out April 9 on Hub Records, Stories Don’t End marks Dawes’ first release on its own label. You can catch the group performing the first single “From A Window Seat” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” May 16.
